Modes of assisted Ventilation for intubated flute and electronics
Assisted ventilation is the medical term for artiﬁcial respiration where mechanical means are used to assist or replace spontaneous breathing. This piece intends to explore the ﬂute as an extension of the performer’s respiratory system seemingly assisted by a semi-automatic blowing machine. By means of a volume pedal and a hose projecting white noise into the instrument, the performer progressively sculpts the sound by using the ﬂute and their own respiratory system as a ﬁlter, rather than a sound generator.
